Welcome to the All Wales Midwives Journal Club first LIVE.

The AWMJC was set up to provide a space where midwives and future midwives from across Wales can come together to discuss topics current in midwifery care.  The AWMJC will take the form of a live online session and supported by additional resources that can be found down below.

We are very excited to announce that our first All Wales Midwives Journal Club LIVE will be held on Friday 6th October, 10:00 – 12:00. You can secure your place here!

We will be joined by guest speaker Dr Lucie Warren, who will be discussing her article, Revisiting ResilienceWe hope you will be able to join us to take part in the discussion.  If you have signed up to the AWMJC you will receive an email with details of how to register for our live event.

Do you have a question you want to ask Dr. Lucie Warren on 6 October 2023? Please fill in this form.

We look forward to joining with our colleagues from across the country and engaging in research together.

All our articles are sorted by our librarians together into groups – giving you quick and easy access to everything we have on a certain topic. Each Search Pack provides you with a list of bibliographic references and article abstracts that help you decide if an article fits your needs. You can then use this list of references to source full texts from your university or workplace library.

For members of the journal club, we are offering you our literature search pack M91 for free. Click here to download it.

The literature search pack M91 covers resources and studies concerning the issue of coping and the concept of resilience in midwifery, including strategies such as mindfulness and meditation. Aimed at students and professionals, this search pack has a practical focus. 

Our Librarians have also identified PN35 as a search pack that may be of use to members of this month's journal club. All literature search packs are free for members to download from our Maternity and Infant Care database. Click here to look through all of the topics we offer and subscribe here!
